GLYDE Acoustic Glass Sliders have been designed to meet the needs of future learning while overcoming the limitations of other slider systems in the market. They are smooth and safe to operate, meet stringent DDA requirements, and offer industry leading acoustic performance. GLYDE Acoustic Sliders can be installed in many configurations, both face and cavity fixed.
Our dedicated design team has developed a suite of sliding doors that can incorporate various glass types which can also be switched for solid surfaces such as pinboard or whiteboards. Individual sliders can be installed up to 3m high and 3m wide. Openings up to 18m wide can be accommodated using these systems.
Acoustic ratings of up to Rw45 are available when referencing the acoustic performance of the glass component only. Quoting the glass ratings as the acoustic performance of a complete slider system is a common selling technique used by many suppliers in the market. Modifying acoustic tested products similar to operable walls and reconfiguring them into sliders is also common practice amongst suppliers who have not carried out acoustic testing on their slider products. Slider configurations inherently create a number of acoustic ‘mouseholes’ that significantly reduce the performance of the systems if not addressed. This method of selling can be misleading and result in incorrect product specifications and installation of products that are not fit for purpose.
GLYDE offer NATA certified test reports for sliders up to Rw35 available in various configurations including face fixed, cavity and dual sliders. Our acoustic glazed sliders are the only product on the market that have been tested in a dual slider configuration.
The systems have been designed with easy installation as a requirement. This simplifies the on-site process for the builder. GLYDE Architectural Acoustic Systems has the team and resources available, ensuring the requirements of any sized project can be met.
